Over 1,500 Ice Skating Tickets Sold in the First Week

Ice Skating fever has well and truly hit Mullingar since the launch of Winterfest Mullingar with over 1,500 ice skating tickets being sold in the first week. The town has been gripped by excitement following the news that Mullingar Town Park will be transformed into a winter wonderland very shortly. John Keane of Mullingar Chamber said “We had a wonderful launch in the Park with so many local businesses and representatives showing their support for this unique initiative and that has been backed up by a huge number of ticket sales in the first week.”

Winterfest Mulllingar is a six week festival that will incorporate a range of events including Mullingar’s Annual Christmas Market and is expected to bring over 100,000 visitors to the town in what will be a massive boost for local businesses. John says “The Christmas Market has created a fabulous festive atmosphere in the town over recent years and Mullingar on Ice will only help to enhance that festive feeling and bring more people into town during a vital period for retailers, restaurants and pubs. It is absolutely vital that business owners and the local community get behind Winterfest and spread the word far and wide.”

With the prospect of being the only ice-skating rink in the Midlands this winter it’s clear why tickets are proving to be such hot property. John says “We were surprised with how fast we passed the 1,000 ticket sales mark but when you consider that tickets are only €9 and that it saves families the hassle of travelling to Dublin during the hectic Christmas period you can see why people are choosing Mullingar on Ice. There are a limited number of ice-skating tickets remaining for only €9 available on www.iceskating.ie and over 12 sesssions have already sold out of early bird tickets. So, if you want to secure a date and time to go with your friends, family or your Christmas work party, you need to book on www.iceskating.ie as soon as possible.”
